| I guess I first realized I was gay when I put together some fabulous throw pillows that matched the curtains in the breakfast nook of my tree house.
After living nine years in Texas, I don't find, as some others, that the people in the film are caricatures. There are really people that shallow in society - especially at the top.

All of the AIDS myths are exposed, and rumors are floating around town that it's the water that makes you gay. Spencer (John Hallum), who is gay, got a little drunk and started it at a party. It spread like wildfire.

In the meantime, Spencer's friend, Alex (Keri Jo Chapman) is reconnecting with her best friend from high school, Grace (Teresa Garrett), and finds that her marriage broke up because of a lesbian affair.

The local reverend (John Addington), who runs an ex-gay ministry, is leading protest against an AIDS hospice. When Alex isn't helping Spencer fight them, she rents a stack of lesbian films to watch. Soon, she is in the supply closet at the hospice with Grace.

Mark Anderson (Derrick Sanders), who works at his father's paper, meets a new friend at the ex-gay ministry, who came to the meeting by mistake. Soon, he faces his father and states he will not hide anymore.

The surprise is that all ended well. There may have been too many stories to fit into the time, but it all worked, and it was an enjoyable film.
